New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner will have arthroscopic surgery his right elbow, and he probably will miss the rest of the season, the team announced Thursday. The surgery on the inflamed tissue in the elbow will be performed next week by Dr. Christopher Ahmad. Gardner has not played since April 17, when he was injured while diving to try to make a catch. At the time, the injury was described as a bone bruise. Gardner began several rehab stints, but had a setback each time. An MRI exam was performed last week. "It's unfortunate," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, according to ESPNNewYork.com. "We missed some of the things he brings to our club." Gardner was batting .321 with no homers and two steals in just nine games this season. Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones will share playing time in the outfield in place of Gardner. Ibanez is hitting .242 with 12 homers, and Jones is batting .241, also with 12 home runs.

Yankeetorial: We must not do something stupid due to the terrible events out West

Not long ago, CC was returning, Brett Gardner was healing, Joba was throwing well, Arod was heating up, and our only problem was securing tickets for the upcoming midnight premier of "The Dark Knight Rises." We were fat, dumb and winning. The last thing anyone pondered was having to suddenly drain our farm system for a Shane Victorino or a Justin Upton, some outfielding...

Kernan Makes The Case For Victorino

From Kevin Kernan:The easy route would be to do nothing and hope the old guys, Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, continue to produce loud hits for the Yankees. The Yankees, though, need to make a deal for an outfielder. Send a limo down the New Jersey Turnpike to pick up speedy Shane Victorino from the Phillies. Victorino would put the Yankees that much closer to victory. The Athletics...

And I'm not worried. Not one bit. I'm not even thinking about the fact that I'm not worried. It's not worth wasting time thinking about. So I'm not. Worried, that...
